On Top of the World with the Hysek COLOSSO

Perhaps the next James Bond villain with plans to dominate the planet can time his greedy destruction with this newly announced Hysek "Colosso." Most obvious is the cyrstal pustule filled with a dimensional earth rotating for local or GMT time. And of course, appropriately priced for any haute dictatorship ($550,000).


  • Hours, quarter and minute repeater, cathedral timbre, 62 jewels
  • Big date at 12 o'clock, indication of the cities of the 24 time zones linked to the GMT
  • Retrograde time zones with a linear double display situated at the lower and displayed in curvex position with indication arrows that indicate which side to observe (24 to 12 hours / 12 to 24 hours).
  • Transmission feedback, biplan, for time zone indications, made by 2 dials.
  • Power Reserve: 48h
  • Frequency: 18'000 vibrations / hour
  • 3 dimensions globe of 12mm diameter at 12 o'clock, considered as a visual GMT display turns on itself in 24 hours and can be set on local or on GMT time.
